Made my version of Beef Stroganoff

Had some leftover Sirloin steak from dinner out the other night,
cubed that up
(over done meat, ack, but I just couldn't leave it,
figured I could make something with it, right? )
some well browned crimini mushrooms
sauteed sweet onions chunks
some thyme and S&P
housemade brown gravy
butter&parsley'ed wide egg noodles
and a "Dollop of Daisy" on top for me to swirl into my plate
(sans sour cream for Mister K~Couple, he doesn't care for it)

dessert will be Blue Bunny Peppermint Stick Ice Cream later this evening

(nothing green with dinner, but that's okay, we had a huge mixed veggie salad for lunch, we got our 5 )

We had fried chicken thighs with some pan gravy, leftover mixed rice/orzo/peas, and glorified green salads a la Steve.

We had Finish the Leftover Homemade Soups day. We had our choice of chicken noodle, tomato rice, and chicken and rice with white gravy. Dessert was leftover Halloween candy.

It was a rainy soup & bread day...Leek and potato soup and some getting-old whole wheat buns, halved and toasted with garlic butter and parmesan.

We had dinner at our favorite Japanese restaurant, and I had my favorite bento box.

Good looking pics, kgirl and Steve!

I nibbled on leftovers. Nothing much worth mentioning. Got home late from spending the afternoon with my grandson, so his momma and daddy could have an afternoon movie date and evening to themselves.

We ate like royalty.

We had dinner at a friend's house...the guy who married us and his wife to be exact, who have been my friends for a very, very long time.

There were awesome spicy, heated mixed olive appetizers, a mushroom soup course, followed by a rosemary-flavored roast with onion gravy/sauce, sauteed asparagus with lemon, mashed potatoes gently seasoned with chives, Julia Child's recipe for flaky biscuits slathered with sweet cream butter, spring water (it's a non-alcohol house), and a fantastic variation on traditional banana pudding (you, know the one with vanilla wafers, etc.) for dessert. After dinner coffee and tons and tons of wonderful conversation and so much laughing that my cheeks are sore.

There was another guest there (a lady) and she was awesome and turns out she's a kindred spirit and I can't wait to spend more time with her.

The meal was in celebration of our anniversary and it was so much fun. The perfect combination of good friends, good food and love. What a lovely time!!!

P.S. Even though I'm retired, the meal also resulted in a small design project I can sink my teeth into. That'll be fun. Retirement is good for picking and choosing such endeavors.

What a fantastic evening Katie! Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
